The two were still around Sunday after making it through the latest round of roster cuts as the Stars move closer to their opening night roster.
“It’s nice to be still here,” said Vincour. “I knew all I could do is work hard, play hockey and that’s what I did.”
Excluding forward Scott Glennie, who is injured and will be assigned to the AHL once he is cleared to play – the Stars are down to 24 players, one over the maximum of 23.
The Stars have 14 forwards, 8 defensemen and 2 goaltenders on the roster. If they decide to carry 14 forwards, Vincour is in a pretty good spot.
Most likely the Stars would carry seven defensemen, so there would need to be another defenseman moved off the roster. That could end up being Larsen, but that didn’t curb his enthusiasm for making this latest cut.
“You don’t know what is going to happen, but it is a really nice feeling to be here,” said Larsen. “You want to be here and you’re feeling more and more part of the team. Then again, you never know. But it is always like that.”
The Stars will need to be down to 23 players by the season opener.
